It's called butyl tape. You can get it at body shop supply stores, Advance and AutoZone.
Definately not. That stuff is illegal to use now, been that way for years. Know that for fact because my father tried to take his challenger to a glass shop and tried to get them to use butyl tape but they wouldn't do it because the glass might pop out in the event of an accident, even though that's what it came with. It's urethane. Comes in a tube like caulking and silicone and such, but about 10x as thick, your forearm will be aching, took me 20 minutes to put all the urethane on the hatch for the rear glass, it was hardeining where I started before I finished. Just go to an auto glass shop and ask for a tube of urethane and some primer (DON'T FORGET THE PRIMER) and use a razor blade to clean off as much of the urethane as possible off your body and window, then prime BOTH of them with your urthane primer and then put the urethane on and push it in. Done deal. I actually just glued a rear window in one of my Mustangs yesterday afternoon, I have the front glass for it too and the quarter glass out for my restoration Mustang, I do all my glass myself, glass shops are way over-paid.

Oh yah, wear latex gloves, that's the hardest stuff in the world to get off your hands.

100% legal and the right product to use on quarter glasses. BUTYL TAPE. I didn't read the rest of what you said, I'm in a hurry and have to go to work.....at a auto glass shop....

Don't use urethane. Butyl is fine and legal for bolt in ( like your mustang quarters ) quarter & back windows. Ford still uses it on fullsize & ranger pick up back windows. Explorer quarters, Windstar side windows etc etc. Here's another bit of info for ya, butyl and urethane are NOT compatable. If you have butyl on a surface, urethane will not stick to the surface unless it is thouroughly cleaned.

The part about not putting a w/s in a challenger is because butyl is not approved by most shops ( for front glass use ) to use due to liability. Back in the day everything was in a gasket or in with butyl. With the advent of the airbag, passenger side specificly, the w/s may not stay in the vehicle durring airbag deployment. And, since the pass side airbag deploys against the glass, then to the passenger, it may interfeer with proper airbag opperation.
